Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematics

Dr. Zanin Kavazović earned his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Laval University, Québec, Canada, in 2011. Prior to joining Khalifa University in August 2013, Dr. Kavazović was working on a postdoctoral project (July 2012 to August 2013) modeling warping of wooden boards during drying process. During the last year of his Ph.D. studies, he started working in Ministry of Transportation of Quebec (Jan. 2010 to June 2012) on modeling of pavement degradation.  Two of his papers (2010 and 2012) received George Marra Award for Excellence in Writing (2nd place) from SWST.
